. >>> speaking of the mlb, they're planning to expand instant replay next season. right now only umpires can review boundary calls like whether a home run is fair or foul, but under the new proposed system, managers will be able to challenge calls for review. now, balls and strikes can never be reviewed, but plays at bases, fair or foul balls, trapped catches, those can all be reviewed. before this is implemented in 2014, umpires and players are going to have to vote on it. then owners will have to approve it. >>> sarah thomas is a 39-year-old mother of three. now, she was actually the line judge in last night's saints/raiders preseason game. and this was an audition for sarah to possibly become the first full-time female referee in nfl history. now, she is absolutely no stranger to being the first in this profession. seven years ago at the collegiate level, she was the first female to officiate a division one football game. she was also the first female to officiate is bowl game. she will go back to refereeing college games and she'll be open for a possible position if one comes available i
a tough season. could mlb do something, lower ticket prices to acknowledge this mess and show fans how important they are and how appreciated they are? >> on a team by basis they certainly can the milwaukee brewers gave that to give $10 food and beverage credit who bought tickets to games for brought the price down dramatically, value of the ticket dramatically. that was a great move on the part of the brewers. i don't think we'll see a great deal of that. baseball's attendance is pretty close to what it was last year. this is not likely to reduce attendance. they have to get peds, performance-enhancing drugs out of baseball. lori: will it make baseball boring if you don't have sluggers and low-scoring game. >> i remember in the 1970's watching pitchers like tom seaver and bob gibson and just loving the games. lori: there you go. >> people come out, they come out for the competition. what they don't like and really dislike tremendously are some people trying to get an advantage by using performance-enhancing drugs, illegal drugs, to benefit themselves and that's a real problem. lori: t
growth hormone over the course of multiple years. mlb officials also alleging rodriguez attempted to cover up his violations and obstruct their investigation. rodriguez says he'll appeal. in the past, rodriguez has also denied a connection to the former head of biogenesis and taking peds from the clinic, but when asked more than once to clarify on monday, rodriguez dodged those questions. >> we will have a forum to discuss all of that and we will talk about it then. >> reporter: well, under the rules and regulation, rodriguez is allowed to keep playing while he appeals, but his all-star career forever tainted as well as the world of baseball. chris? >> appreciate the reporting from there, jason. >>> what does this mean for a-rod and for major league baseball? let's bring in rachel nichols joining us from rochester, new york. let's go through the punch points here. in perspective terms, what did yesterday mean historically for major league baseball? >> yeah, this is a big step forward for major league baseball. it basically told players we will find you. we don't need a positive te
haven't seen my brothers in a long time. >> mlb expected to announce rodriguez's punishment tomorrow. a-rod's attorneys have said he will appeal any suspension. >>> boy, is it a beautiful day in new york city. >> it is. >> temperate, too. >> here is rick. >> beautiful and temperattemper. heb how hot it was for that streech. >> it was awful. could barely breeze. >> i would take the three weeks of hot weather to have this nice stretch now. good trade. it's been spectacular across a lot of the great lakes and the northeast. temperatures well below averages. looks like the pattern will continue for a while. take a look at the werth maps and show you what is going on for your day today. across the east, another nice one. we'll see showers pop up across the southeast. the big problem with rain is across areas of kansas with with very heavy rain falling overnight. up to five inches in a couple hours. that's pulling to the east. they saw a lot of o rain yesterday. big problems there. down across the southwest where we've been seeing the monsoonal activity, take a look at this video out of arizo
. joining me now sports attorney steve olnick. >> thanks for having me. >> we don't know how much the mlb has on rodriguez but rye are there rumors of such a lengthy suspension? >> what happens is normally and typically how they get suspended is through especially in this particular instance is through the joint drug agreement but now the major league baseball is getting a little crafty and trying to go through the collective bargaining agreement whereby they're able to essentially suspend him for anything that is detrimental to the league so the process is we're going to suspend based off this evidence that who knows like you said they have in which they can have the right to suspend him. >> okay, and we know that a-rod has been, you know, quite very vociferous about that happening and what that implies if it happens. that said, steve, if he is found guilty of using performance-enhancing drugs, how much money does he still have coming at him, and can you understand how the yankees would feel like really, we have to pay him upwards of maybe $100 million for nothing? >> correct. and that's
completely, no pub intended. >> it's not going to be a clean case what mlb is working here, we don't know the quality of their evidence, we don't know the quality of their witnesses and how this ends up. the mediator has the power here, he can settle in between. he can remove the suspension, which i would say would be pretty highly unlikely. he could uphold the suspension or settle somewhere in between, which is where i think most fans and people following this story feel where it should end up. you get the feeling if they did meet somewhere in between, it would be difficult for rodriguez. >> let's talk about him individually. let's say it's through 2014. he's 40 years old. he's been challenged by injuries. how much game will he have left in him at that point? >> his contract takes him through the year, 2017. the extension he signed back in 2007. so, there was an assumption that rodriguez was going to play until he was 42 years old. right now he's gone through two hip surgeries in the last two years, but he's still, you look at him as a player. he's still a little rusty in the minors but
in the penalty that mlb imposed but you didn't deny the charges. do you deny that you used p.e.d.s? >> we'll have a form to discuss all of that and we'll talk about it then. >> alex, do you feel that this is a witch hunt by major league baseball? >> a what? >> a witch hunt. >> i don't want to discuss that. i don't know what the motivation is for any of this. but i'm going to respect the process. i feel good that we have an opportunity to do that in the right platform. and we're going to state our case. >> what are the likelihoods that during the process of the appeal and you see the evidence that major league baseball may have against you, that you would drop that appeal and go on as life goes on? >> i'm sorry, repeat the first part of that question. >> what are the chances that during the appeal, you see the evidence that major league baseball has against you, they have to show you that, is it likely that you would back away from the appeal and go on and take the punishment? >> if i'm understanding your question properly, we've seen everything. again, there will be a time and a place for all of
of using steroids who admitted to it fall back in the same category knowing that mlb is looking at him closely? i think only an idiot would do that. >> reporter: only candid fans come from new york, heather. heather: that is true. adam housley, thank you. bill: home against detroit on friday night. we'll see how yankees fans react >>> word from mike emanuel on president george bush, 43 now. apparently he had a procedure yesterday in dallas. this was a statement put out moments ago, reading now, during president george w. bush's examination in the cooper clinic in dallas, a blockage discovered in the an artery in his heart. it continues, at the recommendation of his doctors, president bush agreed to have a extent placed to open the blockage. the procedure was performed successfully this morning without complication at texas health presbyterian hospital, dated august 6th. that would be this morning. president bush is in high spirits and eager to return home tomorrow to resume his normal schedule on thursday. he is grateful to the skilled medical professionals who cared for him. he thanks
